Book in Bar

Aix en Provence - Souvenirs shopping

Located in the Mazarin district, the Book in bar bookshop welcomes you in a laid-back Anglo-Saxon atmosphere.

Tables and armchairs dotted around the bookshop mean you can enjoy a cold or hot drink and a pastry while you read. Good to know: all the pastries and drinks are also available for takeaway.

The café-bookshop has an international selection of books, dictionaries, CD-ROMs and DVDs. It regularly hosts meetings with authors, book clubs, poetry corners and various literary activities for children and grown-ups. A place worth discovering!

The ground floor is accessible to people with reduced mobility.
